    2. 2. Copyright • What do you think it is? • What do think it isn’t? • What kinds of material does it cover? • What do you think ‘Public Domain’ means? SMALL GROUPS - FIVE MINUTES
    3. 3. What is Copyright? ๏ A property right. Gives the holder the right to control: ‣ Reproduction ‣ Creation of derivative works ‣ Distribution of copies ‣ Public performances ‣ Public display
    4. 4. What does it protect? ‣ Literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works ‣ Sound recordings, films and broadcasts ‣ Typographical arrangement of published editions
    5. 5. Copyright protects The expression of an idea Not the idea itself
    6. 6. Why do we have it? To encourage creativity by rewarding creators for allowing society to benefit from their creations.
    7. 7. The copyright bargain ๏ The skill, creative effort, time and money invested in producing material may be wasted if others use or exploit that material without paying the creator. ๏ Gives the author… rights to control the use or commercial exploitation of the work. ๏ This includes rights to authorise or prohibit the copying, issuing of copies, renting or lending, performing, showing, playing, broadcasting or adaptation of the material.
    8. 8. Recap ๏ All work belongs to someone ‣ creator, artist, composer, writer, author or their employer ๏ Copyright is created automatically ๏ Copyright owners have the right to control most uses of their work
    9. 9. Some history…
    10. 10. 1710 The Statute of Anne ‣ Recognised authors as owners and provided a protection period of 28 years.
    11. 11. 1886 Berne Convention ‣ Copyright must be automatic ‣ signatories must recognise the copyright of works of authors from other signatory countries
    12. 12. 1967 -World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) set up ‣ to encourage creative activity, to promote the protection of intellectual property throughout the world
    13. 13. Now ‣ Copyright lasts for life of creator + 70 years
    14. 14. Problems Five minutes to discuss
    15. 15. ➡ Explicit, written permission (a licence) required from the copyright holder if you want to copy, distribute or perform a work ➡ Do you know who holds the copyright? ➡ Does the copyright holder know he/she/it holds copyright? ➡ Who within in a corporate body is authorised to licence the use of works? ➡ Many publications carry no information about permission to copy but depend on widespread circulation to make an impact. ➡ Requesting and issuing licences is time consuming and expensive - lawyers fees!
    16. 16. Legal uncertainty ๏ Exceptions Copyright Design and Patents Act 1988 has > 50 ‘permitted acts’ ‣ But these are narrowly defined ‣ Not possible to issue rules that will apply in all circumstances
    17. 17. ๏ Copyright compliance is a therefore a process: ‣ Identify and understand risk ‣ Minimise risk
    18. 18. Fair Dealing and Fair Use ๏ Fair Use ‣ a doctrine in United States law ๏ Fair Dealing ‣ UK law - no clear definition and more limited than Fair Use - Non commercial research - Private study - News reporting - Criticism or review
    19. 19. Assessing risk If you use content without permission you could be sued. ๏ Is your use likely to damage the owner’s commercial interests? ๏ Is the owner likely to be ‘pleased or indifferent’ ?
